Great little tool and reasonable in price. I used it clamped in a vice and holding the part in my hand. Great results. No danger of the nut twisting in the part so dont get the keyed nuts - you wont need them. You will require some room to work - this tool wouldnt work if the nut is recessed unless you modify it with a longer draw-screw and a spacer.

A great low cost little tool for installing nutserts. Slow but more than adequate if you are installing just a few nutserts.

Sets rivnuts quickly. Be sure to lube the sliding surfaces and the sliding lifting screw for longer tool life.

Gave it a 5 for the value. Ive set at least 50 Rivet Nuts, 6, 8 and 10-32 with no problems. Just use common sense and keep the tool from twisting with a crescent wrench or whatever and lightly lube the slide and under the washer.

The price was right. For installing a couple of rivet nuts this did the job.
